#pubtip I feel like authors worry about the title of their MS, like it can make or break the query.
Of every book I've published, very few kept the original title from beginning to end, and it usually changed multiple times during the editing process. Don't stress it so much.
There are a lot of great writers conferences coming up this summer, so a general tip: email your MS if you get a request. No USB drives, hard copies, or anything like that. Don’t give agents/editors more stuff to lug on the plane home. #pubtip
Knowing when it's time to put a pin in your current MS, put it aside for now, and start working on something new has to be one of the hardest decisions an author can make. Sometimes your debut novel is the 4th or 5th (or 10th) one you write. #pubtip
#pubtip if you'll be going to a writers conference in 2018, please keep in mind that agents/editors attend these things because they WANT to meet you, hear about your book, and sign up a project they love. Never be afraid to approach someone (respectfully) to talk about your work
